Putin’s troubles increased amid Ukraine war, court issued arrest warrant;  What are the allegations?

Russia Ukraine War Latest Update: It has been more than a year since the start of the war between Russia and Ukraine, but there is still no result. So far, on the instructions of Russian President Vladimir Putin, many cities of Ukraine have been destroyed by missiles, in which a large number of people have lost their lives. Now Russian President Putin’s difficulties seem to be increasing regarding the Ukraine war. The International Criminal Court (ICC) on Friday issued an arrest warrant against Russian President Vladimir Putin accusing him of being responsible for war crimes committed in Ukraine. However, Moscow termed the move as futile.

Russian troops have been accused of committing atrocities in Ukraine during the war, which it has repeatedly denied. The court has issued a warrant for Putin’s arrest on suspicion of illegal deportation of children and illegal transfer of people from the territory of Ukraine to Russia. The court also issued a warrant against Russia’s Commissioner for Children’s Rights, Maria Lvova-Belova, on the same charges. “The decisions of the International Criminal Court have no meaning for our country, including from a legal point of view,” Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said on her Telegram channel.

Ukraine proud of the court’s decision, praised

He further added that Russia is not a party to the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court and does not have any obligations under it. At the same time, senior officials of Ukraine appreciated the decision of ICC. The country’s Prosecutor General Andrey Kostin called it historic for Ukraine and the entire international legal system. Chief of Presidential Staff Andrey Ermak said the issuance of the warrant was just the beginning. ICC prosecutor Karim Khan launched an investigation into possible war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide in Ukraine a year ago.

Russia accused of war crimes in Ukraine

The court’s move came a day after a UN-mandated investigative body accused Russia of widespread war crimes in Ukraine, including deliberate killings and torture. Also, some cases involve children watching loved ones being raped and others being detained along with dead bodies. At the same time, in the midst of all this, Russia has started strengthening its relations with China. Next week, Chinese President Xi Jinping is going to make an important visit to Russia, after which it is believed that his relations with Western countries, including America, may deteriorate further.
